The dedication will be broadcast to Church meetinghouses in the Star Valley Wyoming Temple district, as well as all other stakes and districts in Wyoming (except those in the Fort Collins Colorado Temple district). The three-hour block of meetings will be canceled on October 30 so that members can participate in the dedication sessions.

President Thomas S. Monson announced the Star Valley Wyoming Temple at the October 2011 general conference, and ground was broken April 25, 2015. The Star Valley Wyoming Temple is the first in Wyoming and will serve members living in the western part of the state, who have been traveling approximately 1.5 hours to Idaho Falls and Rexburg, Idaho, for temple services.
